Berrien Health Department Offering Flu Shot Clinics

A health care professional delivers a flu shot

Those who wish to get a flu vaccine at a DHEC health department clinic must do so by appointment by calling 1-800-868-0404.

As to his potential dangerousness, the flu vaccine is "considered safe by the world health Organization" and causes "adverse effects of conventional and mild": local reactions at the injection site, fever, or muscle pain, stressed the authors. The symptoms can be mild and last only a few days or they can be severe and hang around for weeks.

And flu is nothing to sniff at. Last year, the flu was responsible for about 14.400 death, according to the estimates of public Health France. As always, they should be should be available at most doctor's offices and pharmacies. To find a non-DHEC flu vaccine provider near you, visit this link.

"We do have "Buzzy" to help alleviate some of that pain and fear". The World Health Organization recommended the quadrivalent vaccine because two strains of influenza B are prevalent in the Philippines. These strains can sometimes mutate between the time the vaccine is designed and the actual arrival of the epidemic, which then diminishes its effectiveness.

"There are many vaccine options to choose from, but the most important thing is for all people 6 months and older to get a flu vaccine every year". "You should get a flu vaccine before flu begins spreading in the community".

The Berrien County Health Department recommends everyone start thinking about getting a flu shot.


"We like folks to get it in the fall before flu season hits".

As the day wore on, I felt worse and worse, hacking my way through meetings.

With walk-in, after-hours and weekend availability, urgent care centers offer convenient access to flu shots, cold and flu treatment and more for busy patients.

Finally, that afternoon, I admitted defeat.

The single best way for families to protect themselves against the flu is to get vaccinated each year.

Dr. Rob, Robert Oldham, is Placer County's public health officer and lives in Roseville.
